Back up supply tariffs:


These tariffs are only available for sites with more than one National Market Meter Identifier where the
second NMI is for a back up supply to the site on a stepped demand tariff. Typically these sites are
customers with greater than 4MVA demands and for critical infrastructure; eg Water assets, Hospitals,
telecommunications sites or data centres. These tariffs recognise that the primary NMI demand charges
are contributing to the transmission costs for the site. The back up NMIs are charging for the demand at
the Distribution Use of System charge and the energy component of the tariff is equal to the primary NMI
tariff rates.

(a) Agreed maximum demand (Annual Demand); and
(b) Agreed additional maximum demand (Additional Demand),determined in accordance with
Schedule 2 of Part B of the 2005-2010 Electricity Distribution Price Determination.
5. Peak energy is energy consumed on business days between the hours of 0700 and 2100
(Central Standard Time). For Distribution Network Users with metering that does not recognise
specific days, peak energy is energy consumed on each day between the hours of 0700 and
2100 (Central Standard Time).
